Grizzly 660 check timing gear + ?

Recommended Posts

I am looking to see why my 2005 Grizzly  660 won't crank. I have set the valves but suspect a loose timing chain.

When working to remove the valve cover I found a "cap tensioner case" - parts #25  - #299 on Babbitts site.

The  cover seems to bridge the valve cover and the cylinder head. What the hell is it and what surprises will I  find if I remove it?

Uncharted territory for me.

Won’t crank how? Does it turn by hand? Loosen the cap to the crank and put a socket on it and turn counter clockwise. Then report back

Past that now- it did crank with the plug out.

I pulled the valve cover. The cam gear is about a quarter turn out of time by the dimples when the timing mark is right on.

I have ordered a cam gear and timing chain and am about to go into the stator, rotor and starter gear.

New territory for me.

Are your valves okay? Yes. Go ahead and replace the chain and tensioner. Move your cam sprocket to in time. You may have to roll it back some because once the tensioner tightens it will roll your cams slightly

      So just as a general FYI, it might be good to check replacement parts before installing.  If possible, check clearances with a micrometer before going through the trouble of assembly.  I say this as I bought a new driveshaft yoke for a Kodiak because the ujoint dropped a cap and got the yoke in a bind...blowing the yoke and middle drive gear to shreds.  So I replaced the middle drive gear and bought a new yoke and ujoint kit from Caltric.  Caltric is usually pretty solid replacement parts.  The new yoke however was a good 4mm too narrow for inside lock ujoint caps.  Disappointing since it came as a kit from Caltric.
      Ended up taking an angle grinder to the new yoke and thinning material off to get it to the needed 41.25mm opening size.  Sucks having to disassemble everything again and start over but my fault for trusting replacement parts.  Nearly 40 years of turning wrenches and I made a rookie mistake.

      I have a 2005 Sportsman 500, Instrument cluster will not illuminate, hi/lo beams work though.  Any tips or troubleshooting info is greatly appreciated!

      When it is  cold outside, say 35 deg F and colder, it is very difficult to shift to Reverse from neutral.  Engine temp doesn't have an effect.  I apply the brakes hard with the hand lever and the foot pedal.  In another post I read that high idle can affect shifting when the engine temp is warm. 
      I will try it with lower idle speed once I find the screw.  In the interim, can you tell me if there is some sort of adjustment for the shifter?
      Thank you

      Got a 99 or 2000 bayou 220. Its started making alot of noise, then the starter would spin freely. Took it apart and determined the three bolts in the starter clutch had sheared. Installed the new starter clutch and in the process, not realizing that Japanese motors turn counterclockwise, I turned the crankshaft clockwise about a half revolution so that the key holes would be on top of the crankshaft for easier installation of starter clutch. I get everything back together and try it. The pressure is so great that its very hard to pull with the pull start, the electric starter turns it over but it struggles greatly. A key issue could be this. When I engage the choke the starter will barely turn it over and you can't pull start at all because there's so much pressure. Like the back pressure cant be released once the carburetor is choked. I'm pretty sure by turning the crankshaft clockwise I screwed something up but I cannot figure out what it is. If there's anyone that can give some advice it will be greatly appreciated.

      Does anyone know the bolt size that holds the timing chain tensioner on to a 400ex? Thread size and pitch.
